Hiking in South Greenland
Narsarsuaq is not really a town, more of an airport village, and it is the perfect basis for a small farm holiday – or, as it is called here, a sheep farm holiday. Experience the Greenland Ice Sheet close by, walk from village to village, or sheep farm to sheep farm, while your luggage is being transported for you. You can also take longer hikes, for instance from Qaqortoq to the old Norse village of Igaliku, or between the village of Qassiarsuk, where Erik the Red lived, and the town of Narsaq. Your options are endless down here, where the beautiful, long peninsulas offer the perfect settings for relaxation.
This is sheep-farming country, so you will see a lot of small, white and woollen creatures enjoying life to the full on the green hillsides.
Hot springs in Southern Greenland
There are, of course, also the hot springs of Uunartoq, where you can relax in rather a unique way as described in the introduction above.
Southern Greenland mostly appeals to those who want to enjoy the immense natural beauty, but town life can also be found in the region where towns are located more closely than elsewhere in Greenland. Narsarsuaq, Narsaq and Qaqortoq are located only half a hundred kilometers apart.
In Qaqortoq and Narsaq, you have the opportunity to set out on some great hikes and still be home for supper. A bit further south, you reach Nanortalik, whose pointy mountains offer ideal conditions for professional mountain climbers.
